1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. We are currently evaluating the "One Post Per Classified Ad" policy. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    Seems interesting. I wonder what it will sound like when finished

    The concept and build are fascinating. While I've heard of a piccolo bass, I've never seen or handled one. How many strings are planned, and what would be the tuning?

    Going to be 4 string. EADG, but an octave higher than normal (this thing is really short - 22.875" scale). Trying for something similar to a Marleaux Consat Sopran.

    I like to build odd things that I can't buy. :D
